How Do I Sell a Gun in Hawaii?

To avoid possible issues with the Police Department, you must comply with Hawaii gun laws when selling your firearm within the state. The State of Hawaii has strict legislation regarding the possession and transfer of firearms.

First of all, you are not allowed to sell or transfer the firearm to any person that you know is prohibited from having one. The buyer must provide you with the appropriate permit to acquire a firearm at the time of purchase. After the sale is completed, you must submit the following documents to the Hawaii Police Department:

  • Recipient's permit;
  • Filled-out Sale/Transfer of Rifle/Shotgun form.

You must sign both documents in ink and transfer them using hand delivery or registered mail. Both documents must be submitted within 48 hours of the firearm transfer.

The state laws prohibit you from bringing an assault pistol into the state. If you acquired this type of weapon through inheritance or bequest, you can't sell it to anyone but a licensed dealer. Before selling an assault pistol, you must render it permanently inoperable. If you do not want to sell it, you must surrender it to the Hawaii Police Department. Whether you decide to sell or hand over your assault pistol to the police, you must do so within 90 days after you acquired it.

Does a Hawaii Firearm Bill of Sale Need to Be Notarized?

Hawaii law does not require a notary public's certification for firearm sales but it is generally a good idea to have a notary or witness to a firearm sale in order to confirm the transaction has taken place. This can save any potential trouble which might occur should the seller or buyer contest the transaction at a later date.
